Since he enrolled as a San Diego State freshman in the fall of 1946, Tom Ables has been a dedicated fan of Aztec football. In late August he was a battleship sailor aboard the USS Alabama. In September he was the sports editor of the school newspaper. Before his freshman year ended he was the school's first sports publicity director. Sixty-seven years later, Tom still follows Aztec football as passionately as he did as a college freshman. Through the 2012 season, Tom has seen 731 of the 733 Aztec football games played since 1946. He's seen all the great ones: Marshall Faulk, Dennis Shaw, Haven Moses and countless other great Aztecs. And, of course, one of the most brilliant football minds of all time, coach Don Coryell. Join Tom on his journey through the great games, players, coaches and seasons; Aztec record-holders and hall-of-famers; and games played in world famous stadiums, and some truly bizarre fields.show more
